Description

A concentrated cluster of short spires which you can drive up to. This was the first group of pinnacles explored along Highway 14, and holds one of the most aesthetic (albeit phallic) spires--the Superpecker.

Getting There

If driving west from Dayton on Highway 14, continue for 52 miles to the Owen Creek Road on the right (5 miles after passing Burgess Junction). Follow this graded dirt road for about 1.5 miles. Turn right onto the Forest Service Road 220, which steeply ascends an open ridge and then descends the backside of the ridge (4WD handy, high clearance not necessary). After descending the backside of the ridge continue a short distance further on 220, then turn right onto a two-track road leading directly to the pinnacles.
